Mixed Fruit Shake

One of the things we absolutely love is a mixed fruit shake. Although there are at least six different types of fruits in this drink, you can always add or subtract one or the other, or substitute one fruit for another.

For example, instead of a banana, try using mangoes. Or ignore the grapes if you don’t have them. The key is to put in a lot of fruits in it, and maybe if you can, sneak in a vegetable or two. A handful of chopped spinach always does the trick here.

Apples, rich in malic acid, bananas are filled with healthy calcium and Vitamin B, pineapple and strawberries contain huge deposits of Vitamin C. What’s more, raspberries contain a lot of antioxidants which is great for your skin and your hair, and helps in faster metabolic speed.

We also add dates for their inherent sweetness and the wealth of minerals they keep stored in their tiny, shrunken membrane. One of these drinks is going to keep you full and satisfied for a long time, and this can be the perfect alternative of a heavy breakfast, consumed within seconds.

Ingredients:

  • 1 apple
  • 1 handful grapes
  • 1 handful chopped pineapple
  • 1 handful strawberries or raspberries
  • 1 banana
  • 3 Mejdool dates
  • ½ cup almond milk
  • 1 cup crushed ice
  • Honey to sweeten – optional (might not be needed if the concoction is sweet enough)

Procedure:

Peel and core the apple, and then chop it into small pieces. Put the apple in a blender. Add banana, grapes. strawberries/raspberries, almond milk, mejdool date, pineapple and blend on full speed for at least 1 minute or until everything is smoothly mixed. Taste, and if required, add a bit of honey to sweeten. Pour in the crushed ice and blend over high speed for 30 seconds more before serving.
